    Emil, sorry to pass along the news that your cross is a fake. The manually stamped serial numbers using a near perfect font match can easily throw off a collector. The easiest way I've found to pick these out is in the weak details of the work "NA", illustrated in the picture below. Your cross is pictured on the left. Hope you can get a refund.

    Emil, you're most welcome. I'm afraid as long as these are popping up on the market they will sell. They are very deceptive and anyone that is not aware of what to look for can easily take the bait.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Hello!

    This again is a collector from Russia.
    My friend asked to learn about the authenticity of the Cross Valour (Krzyż Walecznych) and help identify the manufacturer and year of manufacture. He is not an expert on Polish awards, so it hopes for your help.

    Sorry for my bad English.

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards, Sergey.

    Hello Sergey, welcome to the forum.

    This cross was produced by Warsaw based maker Andrzej Panasiuk some time after 1975. These were produced for both the collector market and also as legitimate veteran replacements. Believe it or not, they are now also being faked with the copies often bearing serial numbers. These are covered elsewhere, but I'll re-post the pictures:

    Thanks for the post Igor. A good looking Type 2 Knedler with the large font serial numbering. Interesting decoration mounting system!
